Yes maintenance is fiidly, but with the oil change every 7,500 km and valves, coolant every 15,000 km there is a lot of riding between maintenance intervals so whether it is 1 hr or 4 hrs to do the oil change does it really matter compared to the enjoyment.

The most important is to do the first time in the comfort of your own garage to get your head around it and become familiar with the bike and list the tools that you should take with you if you think that you will need to do again in the field.

People have added a valve to the oil tank but I think it makes it more vulnerable.
